Earthlove Fall 2020 Review

This autumn box supports the Rozalia Project in their efforts to reduce plastic pollution in our oceans and in addition to 1% for the Planet, Earthlove also donates a portion of the proceeds from each box to a featured environmental non-profit partner.
In the Moment, 365 Ways to Connect with Your World by Jocelyn De Kwant - Retail Value $15.99
This book is so cute. It feels a lot more like an interactive journal than a book, really. It is filled with different prompts to help you feel less stressed, more mindful, and extra creative! I have found that taking just a few minutes to center myself each day has made a difference in how I am maneuvering my way through this wild, wild year. As someone who could easily be described as hyperactive, meditation and stillness don't come naturally to me at all. But these specific mindful activities feel really, well, good!
Expanding on the idea of what it means to be mindful, In the Moment offers 365 unique prompts to encourage self-reflection, creative engagement, and appreciation for ordinary moments. This guided journal is divided into twelve sections, each one focused on a different approach to living a mindful life. The Nature chapter nudges you to look for heart-shaped leaves while you're out for a walk. The Body chapter includes a deep-breathing exercise to help restore your sense of calm. The Play chapter features nostalgic paper games and doodling activities that remind you what life was like before the constant distraction of screens. Filled with a mix of writing prompts, suggested activities, and space to draw, In the Moment is the perfect outlet for anyone who is looking for a practical approach to daily mindfulness.
SKRP Reclaimed Hardwood Serving Board with Skateboard Accent - Retail Value $65.00
FYI: This piece measures 9.1″ x 6.5″ x .60″.
I have a growing collection of cheeseboards and I am kind of obsessed with them. They look great under cheese as well as on my kitchen wall, so they are both art and food objects in my home. This one is on the smaller side, but totally large enough for a beautiful baked brie! It features beautifully grained hardwood as well as a very cool red stripe from a reclaimed skateboard!
Spirit Wild Farm Serenity Wildcrafted Bath Soak, 9 oz - Listed Value $24.00
Will and I are SO close to having the 6-foot clawfoot tub in our guest bathroom finally connected back to plumbing. It has been a journey. I used some of this delightful soak in a less glamourous tub at my parent's house this last week and while it was a little messy, the beauty of being surrounded by rosebuds and flower petals was worth the eventual cleanup. You could also use a tea ball to use this with less mess, but what's the fun in that? The salts inside are soothing to tired limbs and the floral scent is relaxing and just altogether a delight.
SOULMUCH Vegan Birthday Cookie – Buy 6 larger cookies for $24.00
This cookie didn't last long. While I am not vegan, I tend to enjoy vegan and vegetarian food since so many of my close family members follow these diets. This was very yummy! It kind of tasted like a very soft gingerbread cookie with the addition of chocolate on top. Delish!
Green Goo Pain Relief Balm, 0.7 oz – Retail Value $7.95
I am lucky that I don't really have any chronic or frequent pain at this point in my life. What I do have though is achy hands from holding paintbrushes and near constant typing! This salve is perfect for applying to sore hands and fingers. It contains arnica, cinnamon, ginger, and peppermint which work together to create a soothing warmth when you rub it in. It actually smells like the holidays to me! This is also nice for scrapes and abrasions that are farther along in the healing process but might still feel sore and the smaller tin means it's a great companion for your purse.
Gemstone Organic Gem Juice Hydrosol - Retail Value $24.00
I love a hydrosol and this one smells like a bright and green forest due to the extracts from redwood trees, cypress, and fir. There is also a herbal rosemary note hidden here too that just serves to enhance the others. This is a great spritz for your face, though be warned: this is a more powerful and direct spray than many other mists out there. Don't aim for your eyes! Fragrant hydrosols are a great way to add some extra moisture to your face and body as well as refresh your mind and raise your mood. Floating inside are pieces of clear quartz and a little amethyst point which is a really nice and meaningful touch.
Earthlove Pot Scrubber - Listed Value $10.00
I feel like Will and I are constantly meaning to purchase a scrubber like this but we never actually end up doing it. When I am out shopping, I guess my mind is on more exciting items? This is ideal for scrubbing off sticky leftovers (or * cough * burnt dinners) from my fave pots and pans without scratching them and without relying on plastic sponges or brushes. If you would rather not use this little beauty in your sink, the sisal brushes also make for a great dry brush for your body!
Big Heart Tea 'Cup of Sunshine' Tea, 1.8 oz - Retail Value $8.99
I don't super love turmeric tea, but I know it's really good for me! The immune-supporting power of this golden spice is extra important during cold and flu season... and whatever else 2020 has in store for us. Something about this particular blend I really like and I think it's because the turmeric is combined with peppercorn and ginger, which make it feel so warming and spicy! Add in some vanilla almond milk and I am sold. I think I could make this turmeric thing more of a habit for sure!
True Moringe Lip Whip in 'Moonlight', 0.25 oz - Retail Value $16.00
I might have saved the best for last with this gorgeous little pot of golden whipped lip treat! At first, I didn't know if this golden shade would work for me (in the pot it looks almost like a shimmering bronzer!) but I was so pleased with it when I tried it on. It is sheer and, yes, golden, but there is enough peach in here to make it so flattering on my lips. It is a thinner consistency than many of my balms but it still feels nourishing and seems to melt right into my lips. It smells softly of peppermint and is a great conditioning treatment for the colder months of the year, though I could see myself buying more of this to use year-round!
The Verdict: Earthlove is one of those boxes that always just feels really, really good to open and explore. Knowing everything inside was selected with care and respect to the Earth is a joy. I am kind of obsessed with this quarter's curation, too. The book is exactly the sort of thing I enjoy and will dedicate time to, and the self-care items like the salts, lip whip, and hydrosol felt natural but still so indulgent. I also liked that there was some kitchen fun in here with the cutting board, scrubber, and tea! All in all, this box was a total winner for me and I can't wait to check out the Winter box soon. If the items in this box were purchased separately, your total would have been $195.93. For a box price of $59.95, the value is definitely there.
